Including The Eleven>Sittin' On Top Of The World? It's a weird transition. If so, I stand corrected! :)

No you aren't corrected. The first two do not include the combo you listed so I stopped looking at the rest.

That reminds me of the time I wanted to find a killer Morning Dew. I just KNEW that it must have been covered in the Forum before, and I didn't want to appear the ignorant Newb, so I went searching and found an old thread with a lot of links to Dews, or so I thought...5 out of the first ten links led to shows where no Morning Dew was played! A real wtf? moment. I think there's so many shows here that it boggles our collective Mind... Wealth!! ;)

Also, in the show above, the Cold Rain->Doin' That Rag segue sounds really forced and somewhat bad, so I doubt they tried that one again... and where's Pig during shows like these with no Lovelight, etc.?

The 4/26/69 Electric Theatre show doesn't have a Dark Star.

Thats somewhat debatable. For 2 minutes and 47 seconds between Mountains and China I hear a distinct Dark Star Jam...

Hey HeLives: did you literally mean the same sequence? I don't recall CR&S and esp SototWorld as being that common, much less together in jam sequences...esp during the Feb thru Apr period of 69 that I spend a lot of time in...certainly the first few of these listed don't have that sequence...

no.... i just the thought the sotw>cr&s was not what was being referred to... these 6 minutes following the other 46 minutes are somewhat incidental, even though it IS kind of cool how they work the eleven into SOTWl


it is really interesting though, that for a time, perhaps the GD's greatest suite of tunes Dark Star>St. Stephen>Eleven could have been Mountains of the Moon>Dark Star>St Stephen>11.... but alas mountains was gone by the time 11/10/69 rolled around.

and THE version of Dark Star on Live Dead was actually preceded by a MOTM right? it would seem the Dead made a conscious effort to sort of expunge the song from their legacy.

Too bad MOTM was "expunged". I wonder how much that might have had to do with Jerry having to change over from acoustic to electric during the transition? Such a mystical and lyrical song and a dreamy outro. Such a shame it got shunted aside. I am happy that at least Phil loves it enough to keep it around. I'll bet Jerry did too. He probably thought changing guitars wasn't worth the extra trouble.

I agree 100% HL... Mountains is one of my all-time favorites and I wish there were more of them. It's one of the Dead songs I find myself playing 3-4 times in a row, there's few like that...

"Hey the Laurel/Hey The City/In The Rain..."
